“On 4/22/19, MTEM announced FDA accepted the IND filing for MT-5111. Important takeaways: 1) 1st disclosed IND filing for an ETB on 2nd generation scaffold with reduced immunogenicity; 2) clear regulatory strategy; and 3) growing addressable market with potential for expanded use of Kadcyla. MT-5111 is a HER2+ ETB to be developed for patients that have progressed on Kadcyla or other HER2 agents. The current revenue run rate for Kadcyla is $1.1B. MTEM plans to start dosing of a Phase I study in 3Q19 for r/r patients with HER2+ solid tumors. We expect MTEM to file two additional INDs this year, including the anti-CD38 ETB, TAK-169, which could be disclosed by the end of 2Q19. We don’t include MT-5111 in our financial outlook.”
